Rosetta Stone launches Spanish learning course with James Madison University
- April 6, 2011
College students now can receive college credit for Spanish 1 by taking a Rosetta Stone course.
Rosetta Stone, an Arlington-based, language-learning technology company, has created a 16-week accredited course through its TOTALe learning program in partnership with James Madison University.
“The partnership with Rosetta Stone opens up great potential for JMU because we have the opportunity to serve individuals not only locally but potentially worldwide,” James Shaeffer Sr., associate vice provost for outreach and engagement at JMU, said in a statement. “The format of the course is such that it provides the flexibility for busy adult students seeking a degree or those individuals simply wanting to improve their language skills.”
Students that take the 16-week course can receive three college credits from JMU. Anyone could then transfer those credits to schools that accept college credits from JMU.
The credits are currently being offered for Conversational Spanish 1, but will be expanded to other lanugages in the future. The course is available for purchase at http://www.rosettastone.com/collegecredit and costs $679.
